We had a driving rain storm roll thru here about an hour and a half ago I was ask if it would be ok to leave it out in there, I said lets find out.

Got a feeling the locks would rust off before there is a problem with it.

ordered the 50A hardwired unit. Could of got little cheaper at CW, but comes from manufacturer and would take 4-6 weeks. Few bucks more to get from Amazon and will have Monday.

For me the portable ones work better as can check different sites without moving trailer....also can use anywhere to check info.....like at house to check current on different items......good luck with whatever you choose.....

Reverse polarity would not show unless you compare the neutral to ground.

Reverse polarity in the AC sense is the black hot wire connected to the "silver" screw and not the "brass" screw and the white wire on the other. It would still "read" 110 VAC, but the polarity would be reversed.

I remember the correct orientation mnemonic as "Black on Brass"

What won't work properly is the GFCI outlets in the camper with polarity reversed.
Correct.
My mistake. Ty

according to the tracking, my Progressive Industries unit will be here tomorrow, and I just ordered it this morning. LOVE Amazon Prime. Guess I have one more thing to add to my to-do list this weekend.

I just put my 50 amp PI, ems in last night. It looks huge...until you try to fish those 6awg wires around in it, and its really a pain trying to get it thru the amp sensors too. U kinda wish it was bigger!

I love the readout!!
Its strange at first hearing the switch get "thrown" the first couple of times you power the unit on, and after the delay.

think I will go get about 3ft of wire so I don't have to cut the original wiring, that way in the future I can easily remove it to put in a different camper.

I installed a hard wired Progressive one yesterday. Reading other posts on this site gave me the idea of using couplers on both sides of the unit. That way you can easily bypass it (or remove it). Photos posted on this thread...
